    Just FYI, in psych the difficulty in this test is called the Stroop effect. It's the inability to inhibit the meaning of the word you're reading when focused on the color. It is extremely difficult to do for any extended amount of time.

    And that's all for today's lesson...

    Wow you so smart! How you know that! It's one of those things that I am puzzled about but never really get to understand because I don't know what it's called.

    Or some language foreign to you. The one I watched wasn't in English. Maybe they should do this in German, see how well you fare. :cool:

    I'm in grad school working towards a Ph.D. in experimental psychology. There are a lot of fun phenomena out there.

    Yes there are!


    Count the number of F's in the text below:

    As part of my job i'm more interested in the phenomena of optical illusions (or the other way around).
    So without the psy part :mrgreen:, though in practice they come together sometimes.
    This is one of my favorites:

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 and I am happy with it. The note is some kind of S2 in big...

    Quality wise (materials and feel) I would chose the iphone over any samsung. Nevertheless both are great.
    Have you already touched and seen them in real life? Maybe this will ease your choice...

    kinda gotten bored of iphones. also, the size of it is pretty small if you wanna surf around the net. however, ipad is too big for me and i can't make phone calls. everybody uses it too.

    samsung note is decent, size/price/quality wise. idk, i am contemplating.

    If he needs one now, waiting for the next generation of smartphones is not an option for him.
    You could always wait for newer ones. But one day you have to decide...

    Ok, so, I don't know what will happen... but I kinda want a new pair of jeans.. so my question is, can ya'll help me out?

    So I am stuck between a ton of cuts I want.

    Here is what my list currently consists of:

    IH 666S
    IH 634S-Raw
    Samurai S710
    Samurai 710BK
    PBJ XX-007 Deep Indigo's which are MORE than affordable..

    I think there's a few others I may want.. otherwise I'm getting a camera lens instead :lol: but I do want a new pair of jeans especially for the summer.

    _You already got some Sams and IHs
    _Need a lighter weighted denim for summer
    _The PBJ thread is lacking peoples

    Three good reason to get the PBJ!

    Agree - just make sure you can live with the relatively low rise.

    Thanks guys.. I was kind of leaning towards the xx-007's.

    I forgot to say that I also want a pair of DBxSuFu 22 oz jeans, but I'm sure I'm going to wind up getting the PBJ's.
